Ø1" Optic Spacer

Ø1 Optic Spacer

Features

  • Place Multiple Optics in Series
  • For Use in an SM1 Lens Tube
  • Inner Diameter: Ø0.91"
  • Made out of Brass or Plastic (Acetate)

These Ø1" optic spacers are used to separate optics within an SM1 lens tube. The drawing above shows a spacer between two plano-convex lenses. In this drawing two SM1 retaining rings hold the optics and spacer grouping together. As an alternative to using a plastic retaining ring, a spacer may be used to prevent direct contact between an anodized aluminum retaining ring and the optic's surface.

Our brass spacers are also ideal for securing thin round optics into optic mounts that use setscrews, such as our FMP1 Fixed Optical Mount. They provide a rigid, wide surface against which the setscrew can be tightened without causing damage to the optic.

Response from Chris at Thorlabs: Thank you for using our web feedback. At the moment we do not offer version of these spacers for our SM2 series of lens tubes, though there have been some internal discussion about possibly of introducing them. I will log your request within our forums to help support this idea. Thank you very much for your input.

Sometimes it would be useful to make small adjustments to the length of a tube. Some .5mm thick shims with an ID of 1.04" and an OD of 1.2" could come in very handy.

Response from Chris at Thorlabs: Thank you for using our feedback tool. Typically, for an application which requires a variable length lens tube, we would recommend using either the SM1V05 or SM1V10, which can be threaded into another lens tube. The overall length of the two tubes can then be adjusted by threading this in or out by a given amount. When the appropriate length is obtained, the locking nut would then be tightened down against the first lens tube, securing the length.

A Reply from Sean at Thorlabs: Thank you for your feedback! We have added the inner diameter of the spacers, Ø0.91", as a bullet on the overview tab. If you have any further questions or suggestions, please don't hesitate to leave additional feedback or email techsupport@thorabs.com.

Response from Buki at Thorlabs to Johannes: Thank you for notifying us of an inaccuracy on our website caused by a rounding error. The correct thickness specification is 0.015" and our ESD and Web drawings will be changed to reflect this.

the presentations says: 0.015" (0,4mm), but the drawing (autocad.pdf) says 0,02" (0.3mm). But 0.015"=0.381mm and 0.02"=0.508mm. Something is wrong here...

The SM1S01 contains ten 0.015" (0.4 mm) thick optic spacers that can be used to closely separate optics within an SM1 lens tube. The consistant thickness results in equally spaced optics. When using the spacers with convex optics, be sure the spacers allow enough distance between the convex surfaces of the optics to prevent damage.

Brass Optic Spacers
  Made from Brass
  Spacers Range from 1 mm - 10 mm Thick
  Sold Individually

The Ø1" brass optic spacers are used to separate optics within an SM1 lens tube. They range in thickness from 1 mm to 10 mm, which allows them to space the optics at varying intervals. When using the spacers with convex optics, be sure the spacers allow enough distance between the convex surfaces of the optics to prevent damage.

The versions that are 2 mm or thicker are ideal for securing thin round optics into optic mounts that use setscrews. They provide a rigid, wide surface against which the setscrew can be tightened without causing damage to the optic, and their minimal width leaves the aperture clear.
